In the IPC-A-610E standard QFNs are classified as BTC (bottom termination components). Most QFNs do not have a solder-able surface on the outside of the part. Usually the lead that you can see on the outside is copper and classified is not solder-able. On these type of parts no toe solder is required. The only way to truly inspect these type of parts is with an x-ray.
